The acquisition of Bukowskis will scale up Bonham’s European presence and increase digital capacity to support further growth for Bonham’s entire network.
‘Bukowskis has become an industry leader in digital transformation. With Bonham’s global reach, we can build on our position as the leading auction house in the Nordic region. An exciting journey has just begun’, says Louise Arén, CEO of Bukowskis.
Bonhams was acquired by the British-based private equity firm Epiris in September 2018. Since then, significant investments have been made in Bonhams in digitization, marketing and recruitment. To further strengthen its European presence, Bonhams opened a new auction house in Paris on Rue de la Paix in 2021.
